I don't think it's a 22.
Really old .577 tyranosaurus.
Yep- .577 T-Rex. From Wikipedia:
The 577 contains a .585-inch (14.9 mm) diameter 750-grain (49 g) Monolithic Solid Projectile which when fired moves at 2,460 ft/s (750 m/s) producing 10,180 foot-pounds force (13,800 J) of muzzle energy. The production model from A-square is based on their Hannibal rifle platform. This cartridge has the distinction of possessing the heaviest free recoil of all commercially available, shoulder-fired weapons, at 220 lbs into the shoulder with its heaviest solid of 750 grains. The larger caliber, .700 Nitro Express, drives a 1,000 grain solid at 8,900 foot-pounds, with free recoil of 200 lbs into the shoulder.
And I thought jpattersonnh was being facetious with 'tyranosaurus'.
One word......... Ouch.
I wanna shoot it!! Once, and then ice my shoulder for a week, and go shoot my 30-06 like it's a 22
you shoot that once, even a 338 WM will feel like a 22!
Who me??? Would I ever yank your chain??
I'll tell you how it is just as the President of these here United States would. I'd be joking though.
Apparently some gun shop in Africa was
handing this rifle to unaware shooters coming
in off the street,
and videotaping the results for the internet.
NOW, let's all wonder why all these mistreated and
exploited noobs are all anti-gun.
WE are our own worst enemies...
I think your going to need more than a week for your shoulder to quit hurting from THAT thing.
Lol. Probably so. But i really would shoot it given the chance, always looking for a new trigger to pull
Holy sh!t buckets!! I just watched it on you tube... On wiki it said "a rifle intended to stop the charge of a dangerous game." I certainly hope so!
like a chargin Brontosaurus???
